The 202 vital relay features 2 NO contacts SIL4-guaranteed to open and 2 NC contacts.
Safety RS4 relays feature Normally Open (NO) contacts guaranteed on opening with the highest safety level, SIL4, and Normally Close (NC) contacts. These contacts are weld no transfer, compliant with EN 61810-3 Type A (forced guided contacts). They are available in several command voltages, mounting interfaces and NO and NC contacts configurations.
Certified EN50126, EN50129 and EN 50155, RS4 vital relays are suited for train on-board applications.
The safety RS4.DIN.202.24V can be used on board or track side for signaling projects. The relay features 2 inputs to take into account the wire impedance connected between the relay command and the relay. The relay provides 2 NO contacts guaranty on opening with a SIL4-level and 2 NC contacts. This relay is also available in 3U-card format with two independent 202 relays. This relay version provides 4 NO contacts guaranty on opening with a SIL4-level and 4 NC contacts.
For on board application the new RS4.DIN.202.110V, features 2 NO contacts guaranty on opening with a SIL4-level and 2 NC contacts. Its command voltage input is 110VDC.
For trackside application, like signalling project, theRS4 relays (except the 110V version) feature two voltage inputs to accommodate the impedance of the connection between the command of the RS4 relay and the RS4 relay:
- Extension input: R_series ≤ 30 Ω (Call current internally limited to 0.5A)
- Line input: R_series ≤ 80 Ω (Call current not internally limited)
This double input allows to use the relays in post or in line with the same relay reference (except the 304 which has two different references).

RS4 is a registered trademark. It is also registered in China:

CLEARSY is the direct distributor of the products.
- It integrates two PCB relays which meet DIN EN 61810-3standard (forcibly guided relay).
- The two PCB relays are coming from different series to protect against the shared modes introduced by manufacturing errors involving a single series.
- Two “working” contacts from each PCB relay are twisted in series towork out the security output. The distances between the internal tracks and the pins of the safety control must respect the NF F 74003 standard to guarantee the absence of a short circuit.
- The distances between the control of the PCB relays and the security output strips must resist to insulation tensions of 2000Vac.
- The circuit safety is processed with a SIL4 safety level
Safety systems control is often done via safety relays. There is often confusion in the terms used for the notion of safety relay:
